handcuffsNews24 reports that three Limpopo traffic officials are in custody after they allegedly contravened their bail conditions by committing an offence similar to the one they had been arrested for earlier this year.  

A fourth colleague was also arrested.  Zwelihle Khumalo, 37, Lebogang Rapetsoa, 24, Peter Schutte, 62, and Makwena Silas Mashala, 28, were arrested on Monday for alleged fraud.  Rapetsoa, Schutte and Mashala were all out on bail following their initial arrest for allegedly issuing fraudulent roadworthy certificates.  Khumalo was arrested for the first time.  The officials were all from the Phalala vehicle testing station.  Limpopo Hawks spokesperson Captain Matimba Maluleke said investigations revealed that, despite the warning, Rapetsoa, Schutte and Mashala were alleged to have continued using the details of the same victims to issue more fraudulent vehicle roadworthy certificates.  The accused appeared in the Lephalale Magistrate's Court on Tuesday facing fraud charges.  They were all remanded in custody until 18 October.
